Manchester City win 2324 Premier League title

Premier League Final Day Review

The 2023/24 Premier League season came to an end on Sunday afternoon, with Manchester City winning a historic fourth consecutive top flight title.

The 2023/24 Premier League season was enthralling from start to finish, with some world-class football being played at grounds up and down the country. The campaign came to a close for all twenty clubs when they took part in their final games of the current season on Sunday 19th May 2024.

All 10 games kicked off at 16:00, and there remained plenty at stake on the final day. Firstly, the destination of the Premier League title still needed to be decided with Manchester City and Arsenal being in the running for glory ahead of kick-off. Meanwhile, the likes of Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Newcastle United were competing for the three remaining European places.

In terms of relegation, Sheffield United and Burnley had already succumbed to the drop, and Luton would soon join them despite being just three points behind 17th place Nottingham Forest ahead of kick-off. This was because of the Hatters’ vastly inferior goal difference with a more than 10 goal swing needed to keep Luton in the English top flight.

Here, we are going to review all of the games that were played on Sunday, and we shall start with the two title challengers.

Manchester City 3 – 1 West Ham United

The first game we are looking back on is the win that secured Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City a historic fourth consecutive English top flight title. The Cityzens are the first club to ever do so since the creation of the English Football League all the way back in 1888.

On the final day, City were 3 – 1 winners against David Moyes’ West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium. The home team took the lead almost immediately, with academy product Phil Foden finding the back of the net with a superb strike that found the top left corner after just two minutes (2’).

It was 2 – 0 shortly after, again through Foden, when he was able to find the bottom right corner from close range after receiving a pass into his feet from Jeremy Doku (18’). A spectacular overhead kick from Mohammed Kudus halved the deficit just before the half time whistle went – which made it tense once more.

It was Rodri who ensured that City would achieve yet another historic feat when he scored the winning goal from long range (59’), just as he had done when the Spaniard found the net in a 1 – 0 win against Inter Milan in the 2023 UEFA Champions League Final.

Manchester City will now look to continue making history by winning a fifth consecutive Premier League crown in the 2024/25 campaign.

Arsenal 2 – 1 Everton

We now move on to the other title challengers, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. The Gunners still had a chance to secure their first top flight title for 20 years against Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

However, unfortunately for Arsenal, they were unable to get their hands on silverware despite a 2 – 1 win against the Toffees in North London. This was due to Manchester City’s win against West Ham.

The Gunners had initially fallen behind on the day following a deflected goal from midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye with just ten minutes to go in the first half (40’). However, the hosts were soon level once more thanks to a goal from full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu (43’).

Arteta’s side had to wait for their winning goal, but it soon came thanks to Kai Havertz in the dying embers of this contest. It was midfield maestro Martin Odegaard who got both of the assists for Arsenal’s goal that day.

It has still been an excellent season for the Gunners, who will be looking to go one step further come the end of the 2024/25 season.

Liverpool 2 – 0 Wolves

It was an emotional day at Anfield in what was Jurgen Klopp’s final game as Liverpool Head Coach, with Gary O’Neil’s Wolves side the opponents on the last day of the 2023/24 season. Whilst they were not in the title race, the Reds still sealed third place comfortably ahead of this game, and they were able to end Klopp’s reign with a comfortable and deserved 2 – 0 win against their West Midlands counterparts.

Alexis Mac Allister got the opening goal of the game with just over half an hour gone before Jarell Quansah scored his second goal in as many games to make it 2 – 0 to the home side just before half time. Liverpool’s task had been made slightly easier after Wolves defender Nelson Semedo had been sent off after being shown a straight red card just before the opening goal of the afternoon (28’).

All eyes will be on Liverpool in the 2024/25 Premier League season as they start a new era under the stewardship of their new Head Coach Arne Slot.

Sheffield United 0 – 3 Spurs

After narrowly missing out on securing UEFA Champions League football, Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur looked to secure their place in next season’s UEFA Europa League with a win away from home against already relegated Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

They did so – and in some style, winning by a margin of three goals to nil. Dejan Kulusevski scored the opening goal just after ten minutes had gone (14’). It was 1 – 0 to Spurs at half time, and it was 2 – 0 early on in the second half when Pedro Porro found the back of the net with just over half an hour to go (59’). Kulusevski then got his second goal of the game to complete a well deserved and very comfortable 3 – 0 victory against Sheffield United in South Yorkshire (65’).

Spurs will be looking to build on the progress made last season in their 2024/25 Premier League campaign.

Chelsea 2 – 1 AFC Bournemouth

Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea were targeting a return to European Football when they faced AFC Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. In the end, the Blues secured a place in the 2024/25 UEFA Europa League thanks to a 2 – 1 win against Andoni Iraola’s Cherries in West London.

It was an incredible finish to open the scoring for the hosts when midfielder Moises Caicedo scored from the halfway line to give his side the early advantage with almost 20 minutes gone (17’). Raheem Sterling then made it 2 – 0 very early on in the second half. However, an own goal from Benoit Badiashile did score an own goal just a minute later to halve the deficit. The Blues were able to hang on for an all-important victory to seal sixth place.

With the positive form in the latter part of the 2023/24 campaign, Chelsea fans ought to be optimistic for next season.

Brentford 2 – 4 Newcastle United

It was to be Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United who sealed the seventh and final European spot with a 4 – 2 victory in the Premier League against Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium. The Magpies are set to compete in the UEFA Europa Conference League next term.

Harvey Barnes gave the away side the lead early in the first half before Jacob Murphy doubled their advantage with just over half an hour gone (36’). Sweden international forward Alexander Isak added a third goal just a couple of minutes later (38’).

Thomas Frank’s Bees pulled a goal back very early in the second half through Vitaly Janelt (48’), before Yoane Wissa made it 3 – 2 with twenty minutes to go (70’). Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes then put the game beyond doubt just under ten minutes later (77’).

Brighton 0 – 2 Manchester United

Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United were narrowly denied a place in Europe via the Premier League this season, despite a 2 – 0 win against Brighton. This comes after victories for both Newcastle United and Chelsea.

Diogo Dalot gave the Red Devils the lead with just under twenty minutes remaining (73’) before Danish international forward Rasmus Højlund doubled their advantage to make it 2 – 0 with seconds left in the game (88’).

Manchester United still has the opportunity to secure European Football for next season should they beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the upcoming 2024 FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 25th May in what is a 3pm kick-off.

Burnley 1 – 2 Nottingham Forest

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Nottingham Forest were essentially safe with a vastly superior goal difference when compared with Luton Town before kick-off against Burnley. The Reds did make sure of safety with a 2 – 1 win against Vincent Kompany’s Clarets at Turf Moor.

Chris Wood scored two early goals in the first half (2’, 14’), with Josh Cullen scoring Burnley’s only goal of the game late on in the second half (72’).

Luton Town 2 – 4 Fulham

The penultimate game that we are going to review here is between Rob Edwards’ Luton Town and Marco Silva’s Fulham at Kenilworth Road. The Hatters were essentially relegated before this game got underway, and their one year stay in the Premier League was confirmed with relegation following a 4 – 2 defeat against their West London counterparts.

The opening goal of the game came in favour of Fulham late on in the first half through forward Adama Traore (43’), but this lead was short lived, with Carlton Morris equalising for hosts Luton shortly after that from the penalty spot (45+1’). The Cottagers did then quickly re-take the lead through Raul Jimenez was seconds left before the half time whistle was blown by the referee (45+3’).

Mexican forward Jimenez was then on target once again early in the second half to make it 3 – 1 (49’). Hatters full-back Alfie Doherty then halved their deficit barely more than five minutes after conceding a third goal (55’).

Wales international Harry Wilson was then able to put the game beyond all doubt when he scored to make it 4 – 2, restoring his side’s two goal advantage with just over twenty minutes remaining (69’).

Crystal Palace 5 – 0 Aston Villa

Finally, we are taking a look at a 5 – 0 victory for Oliver Glasner’s Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on the afternoon of Sunday 19th May 2024 against Aston Villa. It was a tremendous victory for the Eagles, although Villa’s performance may have been affected by securing UEFA Champions League football, combined with fatigue and injuries taking hold.

Palace took the lead through Jean-Philippe Mateta in the opening ten minutes, and the in-form French striker did go on to secure his first-ever Premier League hat-trick (39’, 63’). It was Eberechi Eze who scored the other two goals for the hosts in the second half (54’, 69’).

Both sets of fans will be looking to build on their progress for next season.  Palace will look to secure European football, whilst Unai Emery’s Villa will not only look to secure a top seven finish, they will also attempt to secure a second consecutive top four finish.

Excitement and anticipation are growing rapidly ahead of the start of the 2024/25 Premier League season on Saturday 17th August 2024. Fixtures for next season are set to be released at 9am on Tuesday 18th June.
